3DBoard is a Glasses Free 3D effect for SpringBoard for jailbroken iPhones. Check out the demo video below to see it in action. You basically move the iPhone around and it lets you see around the icons using some sort of 3D holographic trickery. Developer Apocolipse uses the iPhone 4’s gyroscope and motion sensors to slide your background wallpaper graphic around which gives you the illusion of viewing in three dimentions. No 3D glasses required, and you’ll be able to buy and download it via Cydia for $2.99 right now. To get this awesome app you’ll need 4.0+ iOS. Early reports are saying that there is a slight amount of extra battery usage caused by the app, but not much. Now this is the kind of “different” thinking that makes you want to jailbreak you iPhone.

3DBoard Settings

The app has its own section in the Settings app which lets you change the depth of the wallpaper 3D effect using a slider. You can also disable the 3DBoard functionality from here. Since 3DBoard uses the wallpaper background image to create the illusion of 3D, it will only work on background images that have some sort of texture to them. It will not work on flat colored backgrounds, or really dark colors.

Here is a video demo of the 3DBoard app on the iPhone

  3. its out, and its 2.99.

  4. i got it installed on my iphone4 turn it on look exactly the same? as it off nothing different any suggestion????

  5. I installed it on my iPhone 4 and it looks exactly the same.

  6. Hey I installed it too. And it works for me. Have you gone into the 3Dboard settings under settings and turned up the detail of the 3D?

  7. Changed settings, did a respring, and even reboot. Still not working.

  8. What iOS version and iPhone version do you have? I wonder if that’s the issue

  9. Version 4.1. I even disabled 5-column springboard, an still no good.

  10. @Gig, do you have the iPhone 4? It requires the gyroscope to work

  11. Same does not work on 4.1.

  12. Alright. I have an iPhone 4 and it’s running 4.1. This works. For this to work you need 4+ and an iphone4 or ipdtch4g. Slide the settings on 3DBoard to max and maybe even turn it off and then back on. Should work. Hope it helps

  13. You need to reboot the phone after installation in order to make it work.

  14. It also only works if you are using a wallpaper with some texture on it

  15. Not working on my iPod Touch 4g =(
